Energy Saving Tips for Your Conservatory10/10/2017
Adding a conservatory to your home will provide you with extra living space and increase the value of your home. Occasionally, people still express concern to us about the energy efficiency of conservatories. However, modern conservatories are a different beast to their older antecedents. Choosing a conservatory from us ensures that your extension will have the necessary technological advances which (combined with a few energy-saving tips) will keep your heating bills low.
1. Energy Saving Glass
All of our windows are rated ‘A’ or ‘A+’ – the two highest ratings offered by the British Fenestration Ratings Council. The glass roof of your conservatory will be as efficient as the windows in the walls.
2. Insulated Floor
All of our floors have a damp-proof membrane and a layer of insulation. Talk to our team about insulation options for the floor of your conservatory.
3. Doors between the House and Conservatory
It is up to the client, what kind of doors they want between their house and conservatory. Some people like the idea of having a big open archway. However, it is more energy efficient to have doors so that you can close them to save heating a conservatory that is not in use. Why not have the best of both worlds with bi-folding doors?
4. Blinds and Curtains
In addition to adding privacy, when blinds or curtains are closed they increase the energy efficiency of your home.
5. Energy Efficient Heating
The Sunrise heater from Ducasa is an energy-efficient electric radiant heater. The heater is designed to be installed under low windows – perfect for your conservatory – and plugs straight into the mains. Installing these means you don’t have to run pipework to connect to your central heating.
We have a friendly local team waiting to design and install your new energy efficient conservatory. Give our sales team a call on 01953 600505 to find out more and get a quote.
